Description


Flown printed fabric American flag, 6 x 4, flown to the moon on Apollo 8. Flag is affixed to the top of a 10 x 12 certificate stating “This flag was carried aboard the first manned lunar orbit spacecraft Apollo 8 December 21—27, 1968.” A 3.5 x 4.5 crew photo is affixed at the bottom of the certificate. Certificate is signed and inscribed in black felt tip, “To Rooster, With appreciation and best regards, Frank Borman,” and “James Lovell,” and “Bill Anders.” Certificate is affixed to a slightly larger mount. In very good condition, with all three signatures fairly light, but still completely legible, photo faded (but easily replaceable), four small squares of toning to corners of flag from adhesive on reverse, and some scattered light toning and foxing to certificate. Originally acquired from the collection of Rooster Andrews, University of Texas waterboy and sporting goods dealer. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
